Macon-Bibb supports creation of Cotton Avenue Historic District

What do a local dentist and civil rights leader, Capricorn Records, a sloping road, and segregation have in common? They’ve each played a role in the mission to get Cotton Avenue designated as an official Historic District. The Commission is requesting that Macon-Bibb Planning and Zoning designate the area as such.

That dentist and civil rights leader is Dr. D.T. Walton, Sr., and contributions to our community led to a portion of Cotton Avenue being named for him many years ago. That portion of road – which runs from College Street, down by the Government Center, and all the way down Cotton Avenue to Mulberry and 2nd Streets – is what people are hoping will become a historic district.
